Shaffer, Jody What’s Your Story, Sequoyah? (Cub Reporter Series) 32 pgs Lerner, 2016. $20.00 NONFICTION/BIOGRAPHY
book Cub reporter is interviewing famous Native American Sequoyah. He was a
member of the Cherokee tribe and a silversmith. He is famous for creating a written
version of his language and helping to bring peace to the divided Cherokee
This man accomplished so much in his lifetime and lived through
much war and chaos. It was a very interesting book. I think that even younger
grades could easily use this book as a source for a simple report. A teacher
could easily use this book, or any book in this series, as a read-aloud. The
book includes many maps and images that help bring the events to life.
